I wish Soames's story could go on forever

It took me a good hour to get used to the narrator's British accent (the pace may have been a factor), but he has really brought to life Soames, who is now one of my favorite fiction characters. I was pleasantly surprised to see the narrator try a Southern (SC) accent to great effect.

the least enjoyable of the forsyte collection

i loved the forsyte saga. this is the second book in the sequel. i liked this one least, as it seemed a bit self conscious and not as timeless as the installments that came before. john galsworthy's writing and wit, however, remains impeccable.

Society life in the 1920s

Gives a very good feel of life at the time, and the story grips you.
